Empty galleries at the Memorial as time runs out for the Ryder Cup

While the PGA Tour pulled the plug on an army of spectators invading Memorial, our ears remain pricked for Ryder Cup organisers to finally make a decision over the fate of this year's tournament

Seamus Power enjoyed a timely return to form when firing a five-under par 66 to close out an encouraging week at the PGA Tour’s Bermuda Championship.

The West Waterford professional carded four birdies in a brilliant homeward half to leap 16 places up the leaderboard into a tie for 31st at nine-under par.

Playing off a conditional status having fallen short of retaining his full playing rights on the PGA Tour last season, Power will be left to rue a moving day reverse when posting a one-over par round of 72.

Stringing four rounds together is what’s required if Power is to return to the Promised Land of playing full-time on the PGA Tour and although he collected a cheque worth $19,650 for the solid result, more is needed as he looks to take advantage of limited starts this year.

At the top, Brendan Todd was a worthy winner by four strokes at a whopping 24-under par.

Todd began the day two back of Harry Higgs before posting 9-under 62 to claim his second PGA Tour title, and first since the 2014 AT&T Byron Nelson, at age 34 years, 3 months, 12 days in his 177th PGA Tour start.

The victory caps a comeback from a challenging period in his career, admitting he had the full-swing yips. After finishing T56 at the 2016 Waste Management Phoenix Open, Todd missed 35 cuts of his next 36 starts (2017 AT&T Byron Nelson/T70) before advancing to the weekend at The RSM Classic in 2018, where he Monday qualified with a 61 and finished T54 in the tournament.

With the win, he becomes fully exempt through 2021-22 PGA Tour season and earns 300 FedExCup points and moves from No. 154 to No. 17 on the standings. It took 376 points to qualify for the FedExCup Playoffs in 2019.
